A study published in the journal Science found that a measles infection has lasting effects on the immune system, with damage persisting an average of 28 months. During that time, patients are more susceptible to other diseases such as pneumonia because measles causes "immune amnesia," wherein the infection destroys cells in the immune system that remember how to fight off previous illnesses. The study provides more support for vaccinating children against measles, the authors say. Reuters(5/7)
